Retro WON: High Water Duck Hunt with Hollis Lumpkin

This week’s featured blogger Hollis Lumpkin had an eventful post-Christmas duck hunt. The high waters were no match for this experienced huntress.


Heat and fog were definitely the theme around Christmas and New Year’s here in good ol’ South Carolina, and our post-Christmas hunt was certainly no exception. Changing up the scenery, we headed northeast of Columbia to family friend’s property where my dad and some pals have a weekly duck hunt. It has been a year or two since I’ve been able to hunt there, and this one was a fantastic way to come back.

With all of the rain the region has gotten in the past few months, water levels are extremely high and many of the roads are simply not drivable. That also means that the pond levels are a foot and a half to 2 feet higher than normal… Yes, I think you can Hollis-Lumpkin-Featuresee where this is going.
